Veo Veo, I See I See, Mwen wè Mwen wè, the mural project begins at 1021 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL, the office building of the late Judge Lawson E. Thomas. Thomas was Miami-Dade County’s first Black judge, who presided over the only purely racially segregated court system in the United States known as the “Negro Municipal Court.” The mural will be created by artist Anthony Reed II, known as “Mojo,” and will pay homage to this important place and its history. The moderator, Charlton Copeland, and panelists Reginald O’Neal, James McQueen, Donnamarie Baptiste, and Corbin Graves will participate in a lively conversation about Overtown and the mural project.
The mural is embedded with unique QR codes, which will engage the public and showcase works of a talented artist. By scanning the QR codes, viewers will become immersed in Overtown-related interactive treasure hunt games; an interactive 3-D model of the artist providing biographical information, and an interactive museum experience map that invites engagement to chart the future Miami MoCAAD.
Food and drink will be provided. Music will be provided by @Deep Fried Funk
At 7:30pm attendees will be invited to be among the first to experience Miami MoCAAD’s first Interactive Mural.
